WALLPAPERING WITH PAPER
When using wallpaper with a paper backing it is still applied the old-fashioned way using a pasting table. You apply the paste to the paper and not the wall.
Measure the height of the wall and cut the wallpaper to size on the pasting table. Make it 5 cm longer at both the top and the bottom of the length of paper.
With patterned wallpaper, make sure you have enough paper to allow you to match the pattern with the next strip.
Using a pencil, number each of the strips when measuring and cutting more than one strip at a time.
Place one of the measured strips of wallpaper onto the pasting table. Paste the entire surface of the paper strip with wallpapering paste using a fleece roller. Properly and evenly paste the edges and ensure the corners are also properly pasted.
Now fold both ends against the middle of the strip. Then once again fold the strip and allow the paste to soak in (follow the instructions supplied by the wallpaper manufacturer for how long this takes).
From this point onwards follow the same instructions as for non-woven wallpaper. Read on from step 4 in the step-by-step plan for non-woven wallpaper.
